Overview

"A People Without a Country: Voices from Palestine," is a collection of essays about life in Palestine and the Occupied territories, written by Christian and Moslem Palestinians, and collected and translated by Marian Saadeh whose family has resided in Bethlehem in the Holy Land for generations. The pieces are without affectation, representing an eyewitness, but generally apolitical perspective, on the impact of Israeli occupation on Palestinian daily life.
Both Harry Katz, who edited the volume, and Marian Saadeh, believe that the essays speak for themselves in their honest and unadorned picture of life in the Holy Land from a variety of perspectives: students; artisans; housewives, historians, and everyday people .

[Notebook Entry Day 1] <P> Have you ever wondered, what would happen if we dug deep into the earth's crust? Well, some say you will dig to China, others say a ton of lava will be down there. Witch do you think? <P> I have deceided these are both wrong. I say there is a whole other world down there. Some say I am crazy. But, there is another world down there! I am gonna prove it. <P> ~ <P> I walked up to the hole I have been digging for a few weeks now. I feel close. Thats why I put my first entry in my notebook. "A few more hours of digging should do the trick." I said. <P> I grabed my gear. I picked up my notebook. I jumped into the hole. "Hmm...." I said, when I was falling. "This is deeper then I remeamber." I kept falling. I hit the ground. "Ouch, well that never gets old." I mumbled. I grab the shovel. I diged just about for two hours. Then I say it. "IT'S HERE! IT'S REALLY HERE! I FOUND IT!" I shouted. I was so happy. I never thought I was gonna really find it. <P> But, I found it. <P> (!NOTE!) Hello, how did you enjoy the prolog? I hope you did, Part 1 will soon be out at next res. If you have eny ideas for the story. Just say. I will try to add it. Okay? Great, thanks! <P> ~ Rainbowfall
